4 stars Good for the opening of 2018, and Fernando's seeing the light. Fernando PERDOMO's full-length album titled 'Out To Sea' should have been a fantastic departure of his musical ship. This voyage inspired by 70s authentic art rock scene is full of vitality and positive power, that can fully amaze the audience. Like the clear blue sky and the quiet sea drawn in the sleeve, this stuff makes us happy. And it's quite surprising Fernando plays all instruments like guitars, keyboards, bass, drums, or percussion.

The first track 'The Architect' dedicated to Peter Banks sounds already delightful. Not so complicated but colourful phrases are here and there, all of which are enough acceptable for every progressive rock fan, I guess. Each sound part is well matured and harmonized with others (again said, this is one-man project!). The following titled one is slightly heavier and more of 'rock', featuring Fernando's crazy dazzling, brilliant guitar plays. Suitable for the audience to digest the voyager out.

In 'The Future According To Roye' we can enjoy his psychedelic guitar sound texture, that might have been influenced by and dedicated to Nektar. One of the most beautifully atmospheric tracks is 'The Dream' that he should look for over the seashore. And another fave of mine is 'Sonja', obviously leaning toward Curved Air. We could see her beneath the song I imagine. The epilogue is so heavy and distorted for us enough to listen without breath. Satie's Gymnop'dies phrase should be my comfort.

Every single song is flexibly seasoned with his pop essence, so might be much approved, I suppose. Recommended.

Review by Rivertree
3 stars FERNANDO PERDOMO is a wellknown studio musician from Los Angeles. Recently he appeared on the Dave Kerzner album 'Static' for example, which has made a lasting impression on me. Now here, concerning his first solo album, he pays tribute to diverse prog bands respectively artists, dead and alive both. Well, Fernando certainly is not the first one to undertake such an attempt, however, finally the result matters. Some song titles are directly pointing to the protagonists, others are left open for your examination. Not sure about the deeper sense, while exemplarily the album title track is blatantly referring to Camel (Andy Latimer) I would say.

A big plus well deserved, as he has developed new compositions, not simply remakes. Hereby often enough the particular characteristic playing style will be slightly covered - very nice indeed. And rather astonishing by the way, nearly every instrument is played by himself on this occasion. Although I'm not a friend of such an approach in general, the songs are definitely appealing, this due to his fabulous guitar skills first of all. The extended Dreaming In Stereo Suite may be dedicated to The Flower Kings, where the bonus track Starless is drawing a melancholic reference to anyone other than John Wetton, a proper remembrance. 3.5 stars.

4 stars That's right: You should start here. Yes, this is my fifth album today, but you can do that when 3 of the 4 have little to no interest in them, huh? Is this masochism? I'm not so sure it is this time. It's the Adderall, for sure. The first (recorded here) Perdomo releases have been mild to gr ... (read more)
